ArchiCAD’s simple and intuitive approach to building information modeling makes it the perfect tool for a fast and easy implementation. Up and Running with ArchiCAD opens the doors of ArchiCAD—and BIM—to architects and students of all levels.
What you’ll learn
The student will learn in practice the ARCHICAD BIM Technology (classes taught in International version – English, with audio in English).
Make an architectural project from start to finish, with all the technical drawings of floor plans, sections, facades, details, schedules and 3D rendered model.
Basic architecture knowledge and architectural design skills.
To have Archicad of any version INT (International Version) installed on your computer to execute the project and course teachings.
A computer with at least 4GB RAM, MacOS or Windows operating system.
ARCHICAD is an architecture program using BIM technology (Building Information Modeling). The BIM concept is based on the use of 3D modeling with construction information, which generate automatic drawings of floor plans, sections, facades and details from the two-dimensional reading of the model.
ArchiCAD expert Fredrick shows you how to use the ArchiCAD tools needed to model, document, and publish your design. He begins with covering the interface basics, navigating your BIM model, and modeling essential architectural elements in 2D and 3D. Then he outlines how to document your design, adding sections, elevations, dimensions, and details. Finally, you’ll learn how to set up layout sheets and publish designs in common formats such as PDF and DWG. Fredrick also shows you how to export drawings to the free BIMx app for tablets and smartphones, so you can take your ArchiCAD work anywhere.
